The Couch Bombs emerged after the ending of the ska band, Hatrick Penry. The bassist/guitarist Ian Rosenstein was looking to begin a new project when he met up with his longtime friend Paul Fatur. They had been in previous bands together and Ian knew he needed a bass player. Ian called up Jake Johnson, former band mate of Hatrick Penry to play bass. The most recent edition to the band, Tim Sanchez came aboard in spring 2016. The sound of The Couch Bombs is driving, energized and authentic punk rock. The music brings a new perspective and originality to the deifying genre of punk.
